Teen sexual health

During your teen years you will go through puberty and become sexually mature. This doesn’t mean that you’re responsible enough or mature enough to have sex. If you’re a girl you’ll go through several changes, you begin to develop breast, grown pubic hair, and start your period. If you’re a boy, you will grow pubic hair, your penis and testicles will begin to grow larger. If you have sex, if you’re a girl, you could become pregnant. If you have been put on birth control that doesn’t always prevent pregnancy. If you’re a boy and you have sex you could get someone pregnant. You are not mature enough to deal with all the physical, emotional or spiritual effects of such behavior. But, whether you choose to have sex or not, it’s a very good idea to know how sex affects your health. Besides pregnancy, having sex puts you at risk of getting sexually transmitted diseases such as chlamydia, HPV or HIV/AIDS.

I’m not trying to use scare tactics but you need to know that the only way not to get pregnant or an STD is to not have sex. You need to get all the facts and really think about the consequences before you choose to yield to your temptations. Sex is not something to play with, it’s like playing with fire and can leave you scared.
